Miscellaneous Ramblings – 3/30/2008

Last Day to Win The Web

Tomorrow is your last day to enter the Winning The Web contest, which must have a billion dollar of prizes by now. OK, so the prize pool is “only” at $14,535 but that’s still a decent size. If you haven’t entered yet, you’re running out of time. Better get on it now.

Grace Cheng Launches New Website

Everyone’s favorite money girl, Grace cheng, has given her site a brand new look. The new site looks extremely professional with a ton of information. Grace seems to have fully embraced videos as well. This is a very good thing since she looks really good on camera. Check out the new Grace Cheng.

What Would You Buy with a $629,000 Credit Limit

It seems the credit card company must really like Scott Wainner of W Revenue. They’ve increased the limit on his credit card from $40,000 to $629,000!

The dream of charging a brand new Lambo on the card was short lived. The next day, the credit card company told Scott there was a glitch in the system and that his limit was increased to “only” $69,000.

  1. The last day is on April 1. He extended it this week(more prices).

    1. Nice McDonald’s video! You should try doing that John and video tape your attempt for your readers. :mrgreen:

      1. DeboHobo says:

        The guy in the video is pretty lame. Is he so broke he can’t afford the Dollar Menu at McD’s. Such a shame.

  2. Mayank Rocks says:

    That finance blog was really good looking and everything embeded was really perfect.

  3. Kacper says:

    New Grace Cheng looks really…I need some time to get used to it.

    1. Yeah. I’m so glad.. I love the look, perhaps a little busy, but could be worth copying. Also, her monetization is quite different. Clearly she’s using her own field of expertise. Worth noting.

      1. I love Grace’s new update. … I just signed up. Thanks for the link. 😀

  4. Looks like Mc Donald’s needs to beef up on their security. 😉

  5. Jorge says:

    Eat that food and you’re gonna die quickly. 😆

  6. Maybe this is a little off topic here, but it looks like your blog has been turned over to the Reverse Funnel System with 4 ads now runnning. You might want to put a limit on that one.

    1. Robert says:

      Good point. Are those private ads? If so, has anyone ever tried the RFS? I have thought about writing a post about it. I have always wondered how legitimate it is as a system for making money.

  7. Kit says:

    No free McDonalds for Canadian. We order in the first window, and pay at the second window while we get the food. 👿

  8. VlogHog says:

    I wonder if Mr. Wainner had charged something over 600,000 dollars would he had been in any kind of legal trouble?

    1. Terry Tay says:

      I’m sure there would have been many people that would have taken advantage of that boost in the credit limit.

      He wouldn’t have been in any legal trouble, but I would say some financial trouble would have been had.

      Imagine the the interest charges on that if you didn’t pay it off by the end of the month 😆


      1. Robert says:

        Yikes! Interest at 9% annually is about $4500 per month!

  9. Wade says:

    Wow, stealing from McDonalds. That was pretty crafty though. Grace’s site looks nice, looks like a NY stock exchange 😀
    Tip for all, don’t leave your site down overnight, then wonder why you didn’t have any money in your Adsense. I was in the middle of upgrading to the new WordPress version 2.5 and left all my plugins disabled overnight. I woke up and was wondering what was going on.

  10. Oliver says:

    haha thats soo funny

  11. Simon Lau says:

    I’m digging the new grace cheung page, very clean looking. Rivals places llike globeinvestor/bloomberg in terms of layout and what not.
    McDonalds video was good for a laugh!

  12. Oliver says:

    thats soo funny 🙂

  13. Chetan says:

    Oh so the winningtheweb contest finally ending after a load of clues for getting more points everyday.

    1. Robert says:

      Yea, I couldn’t possibly keep up with all those clues. Insane.

  14. Looking forward to the results of the Winning The Web Contest and I’ve been racking up a few points. Hopefully I’ll win something.

    1. Syed Balkhi says:

      I only donated the prize … didn’t bother entering

  15. Erik Fuller says:

    hahahah thats pretty creative and :twisted:. If ever in a worst case scenario, I will know one thing.

  16. mike huang says:

    Seems like Ms. Grace Cheng is trying this VLOGGING technique from scratch. She looks very stiff and it really is boring. It could be because I’m not interested in that type of FOREX stuff, but I don’t think there is anything interesting about it. It is actually better to type down everything.


  17. Infogle says:

    mcdonal’s really have to take better care… if not then may be they will other side of the window shooting the same video :mrgreen:

  18. If I had a $629,000 Credit Limit I might get that ZR1 Corvette you blogged about a couple months back.

    1. Robert says:

      I’d go for a Ferrari.

      1. Ferraris are nice, but it might take you all of that credit limit to get one. The Vette is only $100,000 and probably comes close to the performance of the Ferrari.

      2. Syed Balkhi says:

        I’d go with a Merceded McLaren

        1. Robert says:

          I want the Ferrari from the Miami Vice movie. It has a special “coolness” about it.

  19. Ha, funny video. It’s great the things people tape themselves doing these days.

  20. Hannah says:

    I’d probably buy a house on the card (a small one) just for the novelty of being able to say I bought a house on credit.

    And no, that idea was not thought through at all.

  21. Robert says:

    I have one with a $40,000 credit limit. Not enough for a lambo, but enough for a lot of different cards.

    1. DeboHobo says:

      Mine are all maxed out 😥

  22. Andos says:

    I hope I can be someone like you John. Makes a lot of money from my blog. Thanks 4 all information

  23. Syed Balkhi says:

    Video is funny but it is still stealing …

  24. That is kinda lame… those people are trusting him!
